Schrempf 'wasn't celebrating' after being caught on the line in Tour de Romandie

Carina Schrempf (Fenix-Deceuninck) came incredibly close to winning stage 1 of the Tour de Romandie Féminin with a late attack, being passed by Sofia Bertizzolo (UAE Team ADQ) practically on the finish line and still finishing second. It looked like the Austrian champion had even posted up to celebrate the stage victory that she missed so closely, but Schrempf explained that she was throwing her arms in the air in frustration.

“I can understand that it may look like a celebration, but I was not celebrating. I realised that another rider was passing me at a much higher speed on my right and crossing the line before me. I was taking the hands off my handlebars and screaming ‘nooo’ as I realised that my power was not enough for just a few centimetres to take the win,” Schrempf told Cyclingnews.
